Maybe you need to maintain and check your stuff before you go out on the water?

The bar and lines are not that old and have shown no signs of wear.

If 2 lines break at almost the same time it probably isn’t an production fault or something like that…

I still don’t understand what your point is…

Alferink, I assume magwello is talking about the leader lines, not the flying lines - Am I correct? This is the thicker piece of line that attached to the ring on one side and the self landing handle on the other, both just above the swivel. These should not be breaking…

Hi,
Where exactly did they brake, so we can check ours?
Btw - can you tell us what is your weight?
Thanx,
Jaros

are you sure they broke? i had the same happen to me where i forgot to trim in to unhook kite stalled down then powered stright up and two lines came loose like yours. on first impressions i thought my leaders had snapped, but it turned out that the frayed ends were just because the tug had pulled the knots out of them!

Pictures… pictures… pictures please! Drop in 2 shots, 1 of the snapped leader line and one of the end of the kite flying line that was attached to it. Ross is our head of design, so he could use the shots if you can get them.

Certainly if you have had this experience we will be happy to support you through the dealer you bought the gear from, so please contact them for product support!

By the way, welcome to the forum and the Crew! Hope to have you back on the water shortly!
